Denture Care 101

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They may be partial–where you clip them onto your remaining teeth–or complete–where they replace all your missing teeth. As with natural teeth, you must clean your dentures regularly to keep them looking great and working well. 

Before you put your dentures on in the morning, brush your whole mouth. Brushing your gums and your tongue removes any plaque that could ruin your dentures. At the end of the day before you go to bed, brush your dentures just as you would your teeth. This takes out plaque and food from your dentures, and it also decreases the likelihood of them getting stained. When you take your dentures out of your mouth for the night, keep them in a jar next to your bathroom sink filled with cool water or the occasional denture cleanser. Never use hot water–this changes your dentures’s shape and ruins them!
